Something Wicked by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

Not long now and Halloween will be here and then gone again for another year, so I make no apologies for another Halloween make before I have to pack everything away.

Here’s What I Did:

The background I used was a Gelli print from my stash. From that I die cut using 2 out of the 3 dies from Seth Apters Drip Dry set, I then cut them again in black card. I then placed the background on my Stamping Platform and stamped the witch’s head. 

Leaving the background on the platform I coloured the witch directly onto the Gelli print using first Fresco Finish paints and then coloured pencils, once I had finished colouring it I then re stamped the image over the colouring.

Once removed from the Stamping Platform I then toned down the colours using black Distress ink and a blending tool. Next I inserted the die cuts placing the black die cuts into the negative die cut space in the background, I then stamped the sentiment. 

I then had the bright idea to trickle blood (slightly watered down red paint) down the card, I think this might have been one step too far and I’m not sure I should have added it!! All was then mounted onto black card and then a card blank.

Here’s What I Used:
